Artcure Diffusional Patch Dolor Barcelona
ARTCURE® DP, It is intended to alleviate the treatment of herniated disc disease, with an action that modifies the physiological process within the herniated disc through a mechanical effect.
There is a structure called the intervertebral disc that serves as a pad between two vertebral bones of the spine. The interior of this structure is called the nucleus pulposus, a gel-like structure that contains approximately 80-90% intercellular water. The nucleus pulposus is surrounded by a highly elastic solid structure called a fibrous ring. If the fibrous ring tears or wears and causes a soft gel-like structure to flow into the spinal canal, this medical condition is called a spinal disc herniation (herniated disc). If the herniated disc presses against the spinal nerves, the resulting clinical picture is called herniated disk disease.
